Scientists in the United Kingdom have found the remains of an ichthyosaur dinosaur on Monday. The scientists unwittingly discovered the skeleton during routine maintenance at a British nature reserve and reservoir.

Researchers at Anglian Water and the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust announced on Monday that they had excavated the remains of an extinct prehistoric reptile predator, referred to colloquially as the ‘sea dragon.’

The remains of the ichthyosaur were over 32 feet long, with the creature’s skull measuring 6 feet and weighing roughly one ton. Scientists believe that the ichthyosaur lived around 180 million years ago during the Jurassic Period.
